Adding perennials to your garden enables you to create stunning shows throughout the seasons. There is an almost endless supply of form and colour to choose from and one for almost every situation.

Plant your perennials in autumn and spring to give them time to settle in to the garden before the extremes of summer and winter. Water them in well and keep the water up to them until they establish. As they settle in they will become less needy and you can just relax and enjoy them.

Agastache

Agastache is a steadfast in our garden. We planted one variety ten years ago and our collection continues to grow. They are just so easy and offer so much reward. Agastache come in a great colour range. The blooms open above the foliage and sway beautifully in even the lightest breeze creating lovely movement in the garden.

Echinacea

Echinacea bring a long lasting show, even in tough conditions. They combine beautifully with Salvias, ornamental grasses, rudbeckias and more. Their tall stems stun in beds and borders and can be picked for vases. A great choice for late season colour.

Perennial Petunias

Perennial Petunias are perfect for adding a bright pop of colour to gardens, pots and hanging baskets. These new varieties have been carefully selected for their mounding habit and flowering prowess.

Perennial Petunias can be easily used as colourful garden fillers and don’t need a lot of care and will last a few years.

Fuchsias are like pretty dancers in fancy skirts that sway in the breeze. The flowers open freely for a long period over the lush green leaves. They are fantastic potted or garden plants. Choose an upright Fuchsia for the garden or pots. Or choose a pendant Fuchsia for hanging baskets or pots. These varieties are some of the best.

Summer Snapdragons provide continuous flowers throughout the heat of summer. The floral spires are lovely and bright and mix and match well. The plants have a well branched, uniform habit.

Aquilegia are the perfect complement to spring flowering bulbs. The soft, fern like foliage of Aquilegias grows into its full, fabulous self just as that of the spring flowering bulbs begins to fade.
